There are cooking instructors and then there are cooking instructors. Executive Chef Edgar Leal of Cacao Restaurant, 2009 James Beard Foundation Award semifinalist for Best Chef in the South falls into the latter group. This coming Saturday, March 28, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Leal will demonstrate how to prepare a three-course meal of ceviche and pumpkin foam, risotto, and chocolate soufflé. The class takes place at La Cuisine Gourmet (50 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables). The $80 price includes tastes of the food, and you can reserve a space by calling 305-445-6620.
